We work with your children to teach them how to keep safe in our digital world. The curriculum across the school involves regular learning and reminders about E-Safety.
The school is part of Operation Encompass working alongside Sussex Police in order to reduce the impact of domestic abuse on children.
If the police attend an incident of domestic violence at the normal residence of one of our pupils we will be informed by email. We will not be told any details other than whether the child was present or not. This is so that as a school we are able to offer appropriate support to the children as they come into school.
